all the amps i'm looking at talk about FX looping

and i'm kind of lost on what it exactly does.

i know it probably has to do with your pedals?
but
info?

Yes, it does have to do with the pedals. It puts the effect before the preamp.

it keeps your signal path from getting mucked up by alot of pedals. Effects like Delay, Tremolo, Phasers, etc. can really suck up your tone. if you put them in the effects loop you can turn them all on at the same time and they have certain "buffers" to keep your signal sounding ok. its best to not put effects like OD, Distortion and EQ's in there though. they work best in front of the amp(aka not in the loop).
